Pay and display car park tickets that blow off the dashboard every time you shut the door.

On our cruise ship, tissues were put out in toilets to use when opening the door. I carry a small pack of tisues, to blow my nose, and open doors. NOT, with the same tissues

We country bumpkins struggle with advanced technology like that, so we don't always get the self adhesive strip on our tickets.

My Skoda Octavia has a little clip on the windscreen pillar that holds the tickets.

more often than not those same people are also driving below the speed limit and not passing slower moving traffic in the nearside lane! They prevent hgv drivers and people from towing from overtaking and therefore add to congestion.

So did my Saab, very sensible. There was a guy on "Dragon's Den" a while back who pitched his idea of carrying a small plastic hook around in order to open toilet doors hygienically. He didn't get the money.

I have just been looking online at the large number of little plastic devices designed to achieve the same thing. That is probably a cheaper solution for me than buying a new Octavia.

Re: Those little annoying things....

If one owned a manor, one could employ a man servant to open toilet doors for one. Problem solved.

Re: Those little annoying things....

* Christmas build-up starting in November.

* The 12 days of Christmas should be reduced drastically, by law, to become the 12 hrs of Christmas. Long enough for any sane individual.

* X Factor

We Southerners used to do that but we quickly realised that the self adhesive strips leave a sticky residue on the window necessitating frequent window cleaning.

Ah HGV drivers. They are the inconsiderate drivers who, on two lane dual carriageways insist on trying to overtake other HGVs. Since all HGVs have 60 mph speed limiters this results in them holding up everyone else for about ten miles.
